All,

Bottom Line Up Front: I seek the current approved English-language baptism text for the UGCC.

Background:
* I am an American Byzantine Catholic who attends a Ukrainian Greek Catholic parish in Germany. Thanks be to God, my wife gave birth to twin girls two weeks ago.
* Our (me and my wife's) strong preference is to have the baptisms be conducted in English. We can follow and, to a limited extent, participate in the Divine Liturgy -- thanks to long familiarity and English-language missals -- but our Ukrainian remains negligible. Moreover, the godparents and our guests are almost all anglophones.
* A UGCC priest friend agreed to come to our city of residence and perform the baptisms as our parish priest does not speak English. Our friend has the permission of both his and the local ordinaries as well as our parish priest. However, while our friend can speak English, he normally celebrates the sacraments in Ukrainian and asked if we could provide the English-language texts.

We appreciate your help!

In Christ,

EM

Hardrada:

Christ is in our midst!!

Welcome to the forum.

I am puzzled as to why your priest friend could not obtain the relevant texts from an official source. Why would he put the burden of that on you?

Glory be to Jesus Christ!

The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton has a text for Baptism and Chrismation in both English and Ukrainian.
